QuickBooks Error 179 occurs when a user tries to log into the bank’s site to access information. I faced the same error and here is what I did to fix the error.

1. First, sign out the bank’s website from all the computers that are connected in the network and have QuickBooks Desktop.
2. Open the Browser and clear cache and the browsing history from any user that might have accessed the bank’s website or QuickBooks.
3. Login back to the bank’s website and see if QuickBooks Error179 is resolved.

I hope once you follow these steps, you will be able to get rid of QuickBooks Error 179. In case you still get the issue try reaching out to the QB support team

QuickBooks Desktop is unable to pull in the bank account details when there is a mismatch in the data. Ensure that the data you have entered in QuickBooks is consistent with the bank details.

  • Launch QuickBooks Desktop and click on the Tools option.
  • Select Online Center in the menu and select the Financial Institution i.e. you bank from the list.
  • Press Ctrl and F3 buttons on your keyboard simultaneously and select the Contact Info.
  • Set the profile and branding information to ‘needs updating’, make the appropriate changes, and click on Update/ Send.
  • Input the password if prompted.
  • Select Update Now and add the information.

Login to the bank account and try accessing the data from QuickBooks. It that still doesn’t work, you might have to make changes in the Windows Registry.


This would solve the error for you.
